Five For Friday and A Freebie

Aloha Friday everyone!!  So happy it is Friday :))

I have had a busy week, and am really looking forward to a relaxing weekend.

I really enjoy reflecting back on the week in pictures, and am linking up with Kasey over at Doodle Bugs Teaching.

The week started with Super Bowl Sunday and I am not a football fan.  I actually don't even have cable TV so we don't watch television.  The family decided to go an a hike, but we wanted to go somewhere new.

We ended up hiking around the University of Hawaii.  It's on the other side of the island and thought it would be fun to inspire the girls to think about college.  We had some fun out on the football field since it was Superbowl Sunday.

In class this week we have been talking about Matter and we did the old baking soda and vinegar trick.

All I had at home was a little bit of apple cider vinegar.  I had the kids try to guess what the liquid was.

She guessed it!

In social studies we are working on Economics.  We worked on resources needed to produce a product.

Their charts came out really cute.

My last pic is one that I really love because last weekend they delivered my new couch! I have never had a new couch and I just love it!!  Actually the whole family does since we can all fit comfortably with room to spare! This is a before and after pic...out with the old and in with the new.

Since it is Friday I will leave you with a little Freebie.  I made these pencil toppers for my class for Valentine's Day.

You could also tape them to a pixie stick or Valentine Straw.  I have some cute heart pencils that I plan to use them for.  Don't you just love those cute graphics from Pink Cat Studio??  Click here to download these in Google Docs.

Freebie Fridays

I hope you had a Fab Friday and I look forward to checking out everyones pictures from the week.

The surf report says that there are supposed to be big waves this weekend, and I am one happy camper!


  1. Those pencil toppers are super cute. Thanks for sharing. I would love to be in Hawaii. We have nothing but cold here in Missouri. lol

  2. I LOVE that new couch! It would look awesome in my living room :))
    Isn't it great how kids get so excited about the simplest experiments? I love their enthusiasm.
